PRC Student wins Battle of the Bands
Congratulations to our student William Barkhouse, currently studying the BTEC Level 3 Diploma in Music, who recently took part in a music competition held at at Leicester College ‘s Sue Townsend Theatre. The competition is run by Rethinkyourmind, a mental wellbeing charity.
A poem was given to all contestants to create a song from and was then performed live in front of a judging panel. The judges, who included industry professionals Tony Brooks (The Kooks and Beverley Knights tour manager), SuRie (UK Eurovision Contest entry 2018) and Tom Clarkson (Music Video director) all unanimously picked William Barkhouse as the winner and William’s prize includes high tea at the House of Lords, professional recording sessions to record the single for the new Audio Yellow Book album that Rethinkyourmind release, and a session in a top London Studio.
Will spoke of his experiences saying “It was a very long day, especially as I was the last to perform and it unnerving watching the other acts but I had faith in my abilities and kept my mind focused on my lyrics and performance. It was fantastic to win especially as I can now record my own music in a London Studio”.
Well done Will!
